When my passion for art grew I started investing day and night into it. I drew in classes while my teacher was talking. I drew on trains and busses. I drew in my free time. I drew at night because I was unable to sleep. I drew as therapy when I was feeling low. I drew all the time, until I realized that this was what kept me going. This was what I wanted to do. I wanted to draw, be creative, inspire people and communicate through what I could do best, which was Art.
In the beginning most of the drawings where black and white pencil drawings. Then I drifted to watercolours and ink which became my favourite tools for a long time. Back then I was very limited to small sizes with a few exceptions of some acrylic paintings here and there but I lacked the concentration and motivation, because let’s be honest? I sucked at it and couldn’t really figure out this tool.
In what must have been 2018 I stumbled upon a documentary about fine artists who where also doing exhibitions. This piqued my interest and I tried acrylic and big sizes anew.
Today I realize that the problem why painting with acrylic and on big sizes frustrated me back then, wasn’t really “because I couldn’t figure out this tool”, but because I was trying to much to follow strict “rules” from books and what to me seemed like what a “painting” has to look like instead of just being me.
Some of the paintings which you will see in my portfolio can be purchased in my shop.
- My first exhibition “Herbstflimmern” took place from November 2019 to January 2020 which.
- A second one took place from January 2020 to March 2020. Even if this one barely lasted for a month due to Pandemic it still got me an article in the News Paper.
- A third one took place from the middle of July 2020 to the end of August 2020. This one was like a dream come true, because it took place in a pub and I always imagined what my paintings would look like in a pub.
